Don't count your chickens

Today with have a seasonal proverb

Don't count your chickens before they are hatched.

This is given as advice about not assuming something is successful until it is confirmed.

Very often we use a contracted version of this in the form of a conditional statement.

I wouldn't count your chickens if I were you!

Well, that's how us crazy English people talk. Still, not as crazy as one of my favourite Americans, Rufus Thomas.

What's the best song to play at Easter? The funky chicken, of course!

Happy Easter everyone!! Flap your wings!
